New Record

A new record can be created either by drag-n-dropping a file from local or network devices, or by invoking and filling up the New Record  dialog box. You can drag-n-drop several files simultaneously and create records for them.

During drag-n-dropping, a Multi-Drag window will appear to confirm entering and describing of each file. There are three columns in the Multi-Drag list: File name, File path, and Status. Double-click on a file to create a record in the database. The New Record  dialog box will appear. After entering the file, its status becomes “SAVED”.

During the next drag-n-drop, you will see the Multi-Drag list with all previously dragged files that have not been saved. To remove a file from the list, right-click on it and choose Delete from the context menu. To remove the whole list, choose Clear list from the context menu.

NOTE: The Multi-Drag list is not a default option. If you want to see it during drag-n-dropping, you will have to activate it by un-checking the Use Auto insert box (Options  ->  General ->  Use Auto insert)

If you do not want to describe each entry separately during drag-n-dropping, check Options  -> General -> Use Auto insert box and select a template record or Default options for describing the files. Thus, most of the data will be filled-up automatically.

If a specific category from the Tree View is selected during drag-n-dropping (or upon pressing the New Record  button), the new record will be automatically added to this element.

After pressing the New Record button  in the Menu bar, a New Record dialog box appears. It consists of six pages: General, Instance, Classification, Credits, Additional, and Custom Properties.

IMPORTANT! The system now supports both Unicode and non-Unicode records with more than 20 characters!
